The Panzer III was a medium-class tank, which, at the onset of Operation Barbarossa, was numerically the most important tank in Germany’s panzer divisions. However, with the advent of more heavily armored and up-gunned enemy tanks, production of the Pz.Kpfw.III ceased in 1943. One of the models produced in the interim was the Ausf.G, with the majority of this type featuring a more powerful 5cm KwK 38 L/42 main gun mounted in an external mantlet. It was a marked improvement over the original 3.7cm gun. Armor on the front, sides and rear was upgraded to a thickness of 30mm. A total of 600 Ausf.G tanks were produced from April 1940 to February 1941 by German factories, and they served in places like the Eastern Front and North Africa.

Dragon is proud to launch its very first 1/35 scale Smart Kit of the Panzer III G tank. Already the kit lineup includes the E, F, H and J, and now the G has arrived! The kit’s parts are among the highest quality from Dragon’s Panzer III family. As a Smart Kit, it draws upon the technical and technological expertise of Dragon’s kit designers, plus it has a perfect balance between easy assembly and accuracy. The upper hull is slide molded as a single piece, as is the accurate lower hull. The turret is made from a 3-directional slide mold. Photo-etched pieces such as mesh for the cooling air grills are offered. The plastic tank also features an interesting range of Cartograf decal markings. This Ausf.G Early-Production kit fills a significant gap in Dragon’s 1/35 Panzer III family!
